How do you convey your interest in a major?
What can you share that shows a passion in an academic subject or a career path?
Here is an example that I will break down in today’s episode:
“Would you like nuts on your sundae, sir?”
I waited for the customer’s reply. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see the owner motioning for me to join him in the booth when I was done. … He wanted to go over the profit and loss statements with me. I had no idea what that was and could only see a giant binder full of rows and columns, listing every single expense of the restaurant.
“You see this line here,” I nodded, “…this is how much the nuts on a sundae cost every month.”
Many teens have had a part time job at some point and many adult admission officers will have shared a similar life experience.
